Apple’s prediction has come true.
The Cupertino tech giant today announced it has set a new record: 13 million iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models sold within three days of the official launch.
“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on Oct. 9.”
Sales will continue to grow too as Apple gears up to sell both handsets in more than 40 additional countries beginning October 9 including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan. The new iPhones will be available in over 130 countries by year’s end.
The new flagship Smartphones are equipped with 12-megapixel iSight cameras that have the ability to record 4K video.
3-D Touch, another new feature, enables the devices to distinguish between a light tap and a hard one, permitting users to perform more actions with one hand.
Equipped with a new A9 chip, the iPhone 6S sports a 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 6S Plus boasts a 5.5-inch display.
The devices come in silver, gold and space gray as well as a new color: rose gold.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are available for $0 down with 24 monthly payments starting at $27 and $31, respectively, from Apple’s retail stores in the U.S., Apple.com, select carriers and Apple authorized resellers.
